Milford Francis “Mel” Egan, Jr. 1956-2011

Milford Francis “Mel” Egan, Jr., passed away Tuesday, September 13, 2011, at his home in Lebanon, Missouri, at the age of 55 years and 16 days.

One of three children born to the union of Melford Francis and Alberta Christine (Decker) Egan, Mel (as he was known to his family and friends) was born August 28, 1956 in Waynesville, Missouri. Mel grew up and attended school in Waynesville, and during his high school years, enjoyed his classes at the vocational school. He graduated from Waynesville High School with the class of 1974.

Mel was an animal lover and enjoyed spending time with the family dog, a beagle named Trailer. Mel assisted with the family business at Bel-Air Mobile Home Park when he was young. During this time he learned many skills and became a Jack-of-all-trades. He used those skills to earn a living at different vocations throughout his life.

Mel spent many happy times with his brother and their friends, and countless stories could be told. To say that Mel was a free spirit would be an understatement. He certainly enjoyed living his life the way he wanted.

Mel will be sadly missed, but fondly remembered by his daughter: Luann Morris of Denver, Colorado; his mother: Alberta Egan of St. Robert and one brother: Charles Egan (Rose) all of St. Robert; nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and many friends.

Mel was preceded in death by his father: Melford F. Egan, Sr. (2001); his sister: Kristi Dieckhoff (1980) and one nephew: Albert Joe “A.J.” Egan (2007).

A memorial gathering was held from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. Monday, September 19, 2011 in the Memorial Chapels and Crematory of Waynesville / St. Robert. Burial was held in Waynesville Memorial Park Cemetery. Services were under the direction of Memorial Chapels and Crematory of Waynesville / St. Robert.

Memorial contributions may be made in memory of Mel Egan to the St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital and may be left at the funeral home
